Samsung Galaxy A40 in for review

Samsung Galaxy A40 in for review

Samsung also did not reveal the official price of the Galaxy A80 at launch A80 but sources within Samsung have suggested that the price of the device will likely be between Rs 45,000 and Rs 50,000. "Armed with our expertise, global capabilities and rich consumer insights, Samsung is uniquely positioned to provide innovations for everyone", said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.

We will have more on the Samsung Galaxy A80 in our full review closer to the India launch of the smartphone.

Samsung says the Galaxy A80 is a phone created for the people engaged in "the Era of Live".

On the front, the Samsung Galaxy A80 has a 6.7-inch full-HD+ (1080x2400 pixels) Super AMOLED display, which the company is calling "New Infinity Display".

The camera itself is a triple sensor affair with a main 48-megapixel lens, an 8-megapixel sensor so you can capture more of the scenery and a ToF sensor.

The New Infinity Display design is Samsung's way of saying the display doesn't have any notch.

Man United hope Rashford can face Barcelona in Champions League
Barca have won the Champions League four times since 2006 but have fallen at the quarterfinal stage in each of the last three seasons.

The A80 was announced at an event in Milan and it arrives with one very unique feature. And although the A80's cameras nearly assuredly won't be able to capture the same quality of images as the S10 family, it does give Samsung an opportunity to experiment in terms of design and packaging.

A few manufacturers have already produced phones with a similar mechanical design but the Korean firm is taking things a step further by allowing the rear triple camera to also take selfies.

It's called the Galaxy A80, and rather than utilizing a pop-out selfie camera or one module of lenses that flips around to capture forward- and backward-facing images, the A80 combines both mechanisms for what is undoubtedly the most wild imaging setup - in terms of mechanics, anyway - that we've ever seen.

Elsewhere, the Galaxy A80 has a 3,700mAh battery that works with fast wired charging at 25W, which should mean you don't have to be tethered to the wall socket for too long when the smartphone finally runs out of juice. Switching to the selfie mode in the Galaxy A80, the three cameras automatically pop-up from the back of the phone and rotate. The device is powered by the new Snapdragon 730G chipset that Qualcomm has just announced.

The Samsung Galaxy A80 will become available in Phantom Black, Angel Gold with pink reflections, Ghost white with blue reflections.

Thoughts on the A80? In a odd omission for Samsung, the A80 doesn't support microSD for storage expansion so 128GB is all you'll get in terms of storage capacity.
